Didn't get to ride one first
Nope, I couldn't convince them to let me loose on one even if I left them the keys to my bike. But after riding everything from Harleys to Goldwings I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted. I sold my custom Harley for this monster for one main reason "Vibration" I hate it and could never get ride of it on my Harley. The bigger I built it the more it vibrated. Sorry I'm past the stage of being a yuppie and I like to go cruising for hours on end so it was time. Don't get me wrong I really like Harleys there are so many things you can do with them, and for bar hopping it's great. The VTX is a level above that, A ton of power without having the vibration "NONE"!!!
I love it and will take all the ribbing from my friends, but we will see, I could have bought two of these in different colors for the price of my custom Harley. This is just my feeling and you will see me in the pack of Harleys cruising around, my friends don't care we just like riding.
